Fireworks at Magic Kingdom

    Me and my wife along with our 7yr old daughter will arrive at magic kingdom June 7th. We were wondering where is the best place to see Ariel and also is Louie the alligator part of the character experience?

    Hi Edwin!

    Meeting a favorite character can be an absolutely magical part of a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation!  Luckily, there are a few ways that you can see Ariel.  The best place to meet Ariel would be in Her Grotto in Magic Kingdom Park.  You can even choose this as one of your FastPass+ selections!  While you're visiting Magic Kingdom Park, make sure to ride Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid to see Ariel, Ursula, and all of Ariel's underwater friends!

    You may also be able to meet her along with some other princesses during a unique character dining experience at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot!  Don't forget to hop on over to Disney's Hollywood Studios to check out Ariel's show, Voyage of The Little Mermaid!

    Right now, you can't meet Louis the alligator, but keep an eye out--you never know when he may stop by to see Mickey Mouse!  Since character appearances are subject to change, keep checking the "Characters" tab on the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Also, I have heard that he can be seen in Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire!

    Make sure to also check out Memory Maker so that you can document all of these amazing experiences without having to be on your phone the entire trip!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
